Aaron Judge is a wealthy man once again, as news broke that the star baseball player has signed a ten-year contract with the New York Yankees, which will take him into the 2030s. According to ESPN, the deal was initially offered for $210 million in the spring and has since risen to the new figure.
While these are impressive figures, how does this contract compare to other superstar players? Patrick Mahomes is still in the early stages of his multimillion-dollar contract and has access to the same clubs and stores as the star baseball player. However, how do the two deals compare, and who has a better deal?
How does Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes Net Worth compare to Aaron Judge?
As it stands, the 30-year-old baseball player is valued at $10 million, according to Spotrac. While many would love to have that level of capital, as far as star athletes go, he is on the lower side of the scale. Mahomes, meanwhile, has roughly four times as much money at $40 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
The quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs is also three years younger than the baseball star. Fans of both sports tend to squabble over which sport is the most lucrative, but this net worth comparison offers a victory for NFL fans.
Of course, how much money one has today is only one part of the equation. The size of their payday also matters. According to Spotrac, Judge is set to earn Mahomes’ net worth in the first year of his deal. As it stands, the baseball player is set to make $40 million per year until the end of the 2031 season.
Meanwhile, the quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs is estimated to bring in $45 million per year for the duration of his deal. It was signed in 2020 and runs through the 2031 season. The deal was for ten years and valued at $450 million in total.
Put simply, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback has a higher net worth, a higher payday, and also has the luxury of time, at least at face value. As many investors know, time is money. The more time someone has to watch their investments grow, the more they’ll eventually make over the long haul.
